Choice Hotels Summer Promotion – Stay Two Separate Times & Earn $50 Gift Card


Choice Hotels just launched their summer promotion. For every two stays you will receive 8000 Choice Privileges points that are enough for a free night at the lowest Choice redemption category hotel, OR until September 30th enough to redeem for a $50 gift card. For this promotion period Choice has lowered the number of points needed for some $50 gift cards in half.


There are more than 1500 Choice hotels that are at 8000 Choice Privileges points per night. This promotion runs from May 17th to August 15th, 2012 and requires a registration. This offer is valid for Choice Privileges accounts that have an address in the United States or Canada.

There’s bit of a small print attached to this offer. For promotional purposes a stay is defined at least 2 consecutive nights at the following brands: Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel, and MainStay Suites. For all other Choice brands (Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria Suites or Ascend Collection) a stay can be 1 night and qualify for this promotion.

Personally, I am not a huge fan of these motel style hotels and haven’t stayed at one for quite some time. I am sure, however, that I could survive a night here and there, if the points earned are high enough. You can redeem Choice Privileges points for Preferred Chain properties as well, although some prefer transferring them to airlines such as Southwest.
